Despite What You’ve Been Told                             (Two Gallants)

Intro: C F C F C G F C G

1.
C
well I guess by the blood stain of your lips
         F
and the wander of your fingertips
           C                                F    C
I should prove true to my ruthlessness and stay here
C
but I’m just a kid of ill repute
         G
and the skin I wear’s my only suit
    F                                     C               G
and you you’re just a substitute for the one that I hold dear
F             G          C
you know you could be anyone
      G                   F
god forgive my tasteless tongue
         G                     C
I never should have been set free
F          G               C
I claw my eyes I skin my face
         G              F
beg somehow to be replaced
               G                  C
that’s how we deal with boys like me


2.
C
well I guess for this world so sick with loss
     F
and those who dream despite the cost
          C                                  F       C
I should climb down off my rugged cross and lay with you
C
but you know by now it's half past late
       G
and I only came here for escape
F
you you’re just my next mistake
C           G
like me to you
F             G           C
you know you could be anyone
        G                F
god forgive your unborn sons
             G                C
I hope they don’t end up like me
F         G                        C
I drag my mind through streets of shame
         G               F
hate myself forgive the game
               G                  C  G
that’s how we deal with boys like me


Refrain:
G                             C    G
but despite what you’ve been told
              F
I once had a soul
                  C
left somewhere behind
G                    F
a former friend of mine
                        Am
and I hate to speak so free
                        G
but you mean nothing to me
                                    F
so if the street lights they shine bright
  G              C
I’ll get home tonight



3.
C
I guess by the dim light in your eyes
             F
and that to you all things come as a surprise
         C                                      F         C
I should set the steel trap of your thighs and dive right in
C
but to you I’m just a confused child
G
insecure or in denial
F                                        C           G
go raise your robes and hold your trial I’ll let you win
F           G           C
you know I could be anyone
       G                      F
god forgive what I should’ve done
             G               C
my thoughts enough to guilty be
F      G                 C
yes I guess I made this bed
         G                   F
but I’ll take the sidewalk instead
               G                  C
that’s how we deal with boys like me

Refrain:
     G                        C    G
but despite what you’ve been told
              F
I once had a soul
                  C
left somewhere behind
G                    F
a former friend of mine
       G                Am
and I hate to sound so true
                       G
but I mean nothing to you
                                    F
so if the street lights they shine bright
  G              C    G F C G F
I’ll get home tonight

Outro: Am G F Em Dm G C
